was director of the fbi before he became the administrator. the tsa and mr. was a vacant position. there was an act did -- activity in there. it took them a while. when they got somebody in there, mr. pistol, everybody agreed he was a great man for the job, and he has made his goal to try to make tsa smarter. as a man who came on board at the fbi and saw the intelligence world grow after 9/11, he wanted to do the same with tsa and have them be a little bit leaner, smarter, and a manifestation of that is the new trust it traveler initiative. if you file on time and they know your history, you're not a terrorist, the odds are. they're using common sense in applying a trusted traveler system so they can focus their resources of people they know less about. host: the head of the tsa made a comment last month, talking about the type of terrorist threat that concerns him the most. [viceo clip] >> the concern is not so much we know who are on the watch list -- >> you can see the rest of this act c-span.org. the title. the clerk: report to accompany house resolution 773, resolution provid
think that is more however a law enforcement, f.b.i., justice department sort of role to investigate those domestic terrorism. homeland security is more responsible for guarding our borders, northern, southern, people coming by water and people coming by air. as well as a lot of coordination with local law enforcement. so, they have some law enforcement responsibilities, but if you're talking about going to investigate a group who you think may -- guest: congressman, i need to jump in we need to go to the white house where they're going to d a moment of silence. we'll come back to our discussion. host: a moment of silence this morning at the white house with the president and the first lady. you heard the bells ring at 8:46 a.m. eastern time. the time when the north tower was struck by those airplanes 11 years ago. fearly 3,000 americans died -- nearly 3,000 americans died that day with the attacks on the world trade center and attacks at the pentagon here in washington. our cameras are up in new york where the world trade center memorial service today, also there on your screen you
$100 billion in cuts next year. i guarantee you. but doing it across the board, cuts into f.b.i., it cuts into our defense, it cuts into border patrol, it cuts into the basics and the heart of what we're doing and we cannot do that. the house passed a very specific plan for dealing with this last may. it is complete for us. now it's time for the senate to actually do their job and it's time for the president to send that out over to us. with that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman from new jersey. mr. garrett: madam speaker, at this time i yield to a third gentleman from california, over here, the gentleman from california, four minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california four four -- for four minutes. >> thank you. thought i'd fool you. go to the left. it fools a lot of people. mr. speaker, i rise in support obviously of h.r. 6365, the national security and job protection act. do we need any more evidence that recent events in egypt and
enforcement, work at airports, coalesce and collaborate with the f.b.i. and d.e.a. and a.t.f. and others around the question of security. i am glad these programs are being expanded for security purposes, for efficiency purposes, for utilization of our tax dollars in the right way. and that is why i'm pleased to see the majority -- that the majority and the ranking member, along with members of the democratic part of the committee, at my request, in submission of an amendment, accepted my amendment during committee consideration to authorize $400 million for the transportation security grant program for f.y. 2012 and f.y. 2013. this funding will ensure that transportation agencies have the resources needed to secure our public and mass transit systems. i would argue that it complements what we're doing in aviation, which together maintains the nucleus, if you will, of transportation security. so i'm hoping that this will move quickly through the united states senate and find itself on the president's desk. it is crucial. i then hope that my colleagues can come together for us to put on t
, is a california based solar panel manufacturer that not only went bankrupt but was raided by the f.b.i. a week later and they lost almost a half billion dollars. my colleagues, this bill was systematically put together carefully. it will phase out the department of energy's grossly mismanaged loan guarantee program by simply stopping d.o.e. from issuing any loan guarantees for applications submitted after december 31, 2011. but for those applications submitted prior to december, 2011, cut off date, the legislation allows them to remain eligible to receive a guarantee but subjects them to tougher, tougher scrutiny. and provides taxpayers strong new protections, including, let me outline these four basic protections, forbidding the subordination of u.s. taxpayer dollars at any time to private investors. number two, requiring the department of energy to submit to congress that temperatures report that details the specifics of any new loan program. which is going to be guaranteed by the taxpayers. requiring the department of energy to consult with treasury prior to any restructuring of a guarantee
circumstances. this is a job for the fbi, not the cia. by the way, by and large, most of the information that we knew, we knew it about the guy coming in to try, and it was derived from foreign. our base of knowledge of him was foreign intelligence. to me the right entry point was enemy combatant, n.h. -- agent of war, deal with it that way. the roots of the information are that we should treat this as a law enforcement problem. in broad measure, my sense is that that is how we should do with it. thank you all for coming here this afternoon. i hope you have left with more questions than it had and you came in. that was my intent. they you for giving me the opportunity.

on defense. also on the f.b.i., on border security. you know what, we had a proposal to pay for part of that to prevent the sequester with the buffett rule and some other cuts. our republican colleagues talked about the terrible consequences of the cuts but they just don't want to pay for them. they don't want to ask the american people to contribute one more penny. thank you, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan, mr. levin, reserves. the gentleman from michigan, mr. camp, is recognized. mr. camp: i'm prepared to close. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan, mr. levin. mr. levin: i've been thinking this is really mislabeled. why don't we call it the mitt romney rule act of 2012? he paid the return he indicated less than 15%. he earned many, many millions. he knew what the code now says. he could have sent some of the money that was not taxed to the government. all he had to do -- he could use a credit card. but he hasn't done that. so i mean this is mislabeled. it has nothing to do with mr. buffett. there's
